MALLAIG fundraisers donated £ 33,900 to the RNLI last year – but more volunteers are needed to keep up the good work.
The fundraising group held numerous events in 2016, including a whisky tasting which raised £700 and a Hallowe’en dance that brought in more than £2,300.
Branch fundraising group treasurer Audrey McKay said: ‘We have our own branch of RNLI fundraisers which has been going for year. I have been the treasurer for six years now. But we are struggling at the moment and are trying to recruit new volunteers.'
The group's end of year accounts showed: Donations £9,930; branch events £ 8,923; recognition credits £ 8,145, contribution boxes £4,153 and in memoriam donations £ 3,147.
